Madeline was our Nana's sister, a second Nana for us, very emotional leaving her to rest today, loved her so dearly, thanks to all that came, rest in peace lady Windsor from Briege, Colm Conor, Ciara, Tara
— Conor
These countless warm tributes to Madeleine are testament to the sizeable impact she had in so many people’s lives, from family and friends, to neighbours and acquaintances, who turned out in such supportive numbers at St. Oliver Plunkett’s Church in Blackrock today.

A lady to the last – elegant, dignified, intellectual, fiercely independent – her approach to life committed to do doing things well and doing them properly, as she would expect of others. Her sometimes formidable exterior hosted an extraordinarily generous heart that extended beyond the call of expectation - always engaged, curious and willing to partake in every social occasion and in marking the life milestones of others (notably, rather than her own!). She was a model of independent living in older age, astonishing in her determination to remain physically and mentally active, never once wishing to be a burden on others.

Madeleine was a steadfast and enriching presence in the Hickey household – a true surrogate granny for one we never knew – and the best possible friend to our parents Angela and Bernard, and to our late granny Gagoo/Kay who so enjoyed her company and shared many interests, including her love of cats and dogs.

We are privileged to have known Madeleine and to have had her influence in our lives.

We extend our shared condolences to her entire family and friends.
— Hickey Household, Elm Park
Sincere condolences to Madeleine's family and Angela and Bernard Hickey and their family. Madeleine was a wonderful lady with a positive outlook on life and she was always interested in everyone else.
